What's It Going To Take For You Pussy Motherfuckers To Feel Safe?

Jesus, that's all I hear lately, a bunch of bleating fucking sheep crying about every goddamn thing under the sun.
Take a fucking minute and start counting all the goddamn laws you Nanny motherfuckers have passed in the last thirty years trying to make yourselves feel safe from everything you can fucking think of.
It makes my fucking head spin.

Just off the top of my thick head;

Gotta wear seat belts,check.
Gotta wear helmets on a motorcycle, check.
Kids gotta wear helmets when riding bikes or skateboarding, check.
School safety zones, check.
Gotta have car insurance, check.
Free Speech zones, check and double check, more on that shit later.
Gotta have two dozen fucking air bags in your cars, check.
Can't park your own fucking car, they manufacture one that parks by it's self so you don't run over some other idiot trying, check.
Five mile an hour crash bumpers on your car, check. (made out of styrofoam inside, idiots), check.
Gun free zones, check. (how's that workin' for ya?)
Child safety caps, check.
Baby proofing products all over your goddamn house, check.

I think you get my fucking point here, besides this is pissing me off the more I think about it and now I have a fucking headache.
Back to those Free Speech Zones that Reagan had crammed down our throats.
Where ever I happen to be standing is a goddamn Free Speech zone and if you don't like it, you can feel free to mozy down the fucking road out of hearing.

I swear it's getting to the point these Nanny motherfuckers just want you to wrap yourself head to toe in bubble wrap and just stay on the fucking couch for your own good.

I got news for you sonsabitches, it don't work that way.

I am a full grown adult male, over fifty years of age and I don't need you pansy cocksuckers passing ten thousand god damn laws trying to protect me from myself.

There is this thing called Natural Selection and Survival of the Fittest, look into that sometime.
This country is chock full of people too fucking stupid to tie their own shoes and that is who these fucking Nanny bastards are trying to protect themselves from.
Sorry for your luck but I think you are seriously outnumbered.

Let nature take it's course and we will all be better off in the long run.
In the mean time, get a fucking life and stay the hell out of mine you pussy bastards.

Blogroll Amnesty Day

Medium Bad2 photo BAD2-2.jpg

Yes, B.A.D. has come once again.
I try to participate every year because for one, it is the right thing to do and two, I can remember when I first started Blogging and the frustration of getting zero traffic OR comments for a long time.

I can also remember when Good Ol' Skippy put me on his Blogroll.
That was a huge thrill. Skippy was the first big name Blogger to add my humble little rant hole to his extensive Blogroll, put up a link to me on his Blog and the rest is history.
I haven't shut my fucking mouth since.

The origins of this little exercise are a lesson in back stabbing that caught a lot of people by surprise and pissed even more completely off.

The short version is back in '07, DKOS and ATRIOS decided to slash their blogrolls of all the little blogs that were on their Blogrolls and all hell broke loose.
I ain't linking to either one of those dickheads.
This is where Skippy and the late AL Weisel step up to the plate for all of Blogtopia. (Y!SCTP)

"...in blogtopia, and yes, we coined that phrase, the coinage of the realm is linkage. and versa visa. the only way to give value to your peers is thru links. and a spot on your permanent blogroll is the highest value you can give.

so, in spite of the protestations that it's "nothing personal," it's quite literally the opposite: you cut a blog from your roll, you are stating to your readers that you don't find that blog of any value. that cut blog is no longer your peer."

Skippy and Al have between them, helped give much needed traffic and exposure to literally hundreds of Blogs.
I consider Skippy to be my Blogfather (I coined that one!) and will never forget what his linkage did for me.

So here is the deal and anyone can play.

once again, it's time for our yearly celebration of blogroll amnesty day!
B.A.D. is the holiday wherein we ask everyone in blogtopia (and yes, we coined that phrase) to link to 5 smaller blogs w/less traffic than theirs (no bad jokes about no blogs having less traffic than yours, please).
this way we all can introduce our readers to new voices in blogtopia (and yes, we coined that phrase)' as well as giving greater exposure to blogs which may otherwise go unnoticed.

to begin this year's festivities, we'll let our other partner in this endeavor, Blue Gal, introduce some ground rules:
small and newbie bloggers please be aware of the ironclad rule that you are not allowed to make "hey no blog is as small as mine" jokes regarding blogroll amnesty day. the rule is, straight from the queen of the indy blogs herself (ahem), that you are not allowed to complain or mention your blog's low traffic until you have been posting daily for a year. if you're little, link other blogs that are new or still growing their audience, and encourage them to practice their craft daily. then, show them how.

truthfully. not only is the "there are no blogs smaller than mine" joke unoriginal, it's not funny, and is seriously whiny. unless you have a blog with literally zero traffic, which means that even you don't bother to read it, then you can bet there are blogs with traffic smller than yours. be a mensch. find them. link to them. help each other out.

one two more favors: you may write this post any time during this four-day festivus, but when you do, please forward a link of it to us, and we'll happily include it in one of several posts we'll be doing all thu-out the celebration.

also, if you would be so kind, please include a link to this very blog post in your own. last year we actually got a headline @ memeorandum (here), and, truth be told, we're itching for another.

That would be a link back to Skippy.

Without further ado, as they say, here is my list of five.

Un-Original Thoughts

BJ is a hoot.
We seem to have very similar tastes in what we find humorous, the sick bastard.

The Ultimate Answer To Kings.

Joel is a real live crusty old desert hermit, he built his own place to live and chronicles his daily struggles and his decidedly outspoken opinions. All with one leg. He recently found out he has glaucoma too but he is one stoic sumbitch and I say that with all due respect.Tougher than beef jerky, that guy.
He rocks in my opinion and I had the honor of being picked out of a list of suggestions to name his new website address. (Joel's Gulch)

Herlander Walking.
Syrbal is a fellow Washingtonian farther up North and she is a no nonsense lady with an incredibly developed sense of what is right and what is wrong  and she isn't afraid of anything.
A damn nice lady, just don't fuck with her.She's allergic to bullshit.


Don't ask me, I looked it up once and it's French for something, I can't remember.
Demeur is another fellow Washingtonian and yes, it is just a coincidence.

He is in HAZMAT and is also all over what is going on, he is still even keeping track of how many banks are going belly up!
I like his theory of how to gauge how bad the economy and the unemployment rate is by counting how many cars are in the driveways of his neighborhood during the work week.
Pretty smart, that.

Last but certainly not least, I would like to introduce you to Sixbears In The Woods.
A very interesting fella, this guy.
He lives way up in the North East where it gets colder than a well diggers ass in the winter time, as in minus twenty degrees.
I especially enjoy reading him because he is very much down to earth, used to be a fire fighter at one time even and lives out in the boonies.
Smart as hell and handy like  if it's messed up, call him first.
He even rigged up an old ambulance with a diesel engine to run on used cooking oil!
He and his wife have a small sail boat and when winter hits they bail out and head South and putt around on the sailboat just kickin' it and having a grand old time.
A real nice guy.

Well, there it is.

Once again, I would like to thank Skippy for all he does for us out here in Blogtopia.

If you would like to be added to my Blogroll, drop me a line in the comments with a link and I'll get on it ASAP.
All I ask is reciprocity.
The same goes for Skippy. Just ask and he will add you to his too.

Now go click on those links up there and get busy .Leave them a comment so they will know you were there and tell 'em Busted sent ya.

You'll feel better for it I guarantee ya.

BTW, don't forget that this is basically an archive site. I Blog all the time over at my Wordpress site with the same name.
Leave me a comment and your link here and I will add it to both sites!
